In the next couple of months I will be focusing onto Windows Server Codename “Longhorn”. What will I do? First of all I will have some speaking engagements at different events. The first one will be on March 7 during the TechNet Evening – Overview of What’s New in Windows Server “Longhorn” (I’ll post the subscription link when it’s available) and the second talk will be at the Dev & IT Pro days where I will talk about the work we did to make Terminal Services in Longhorn server even better.
Next I will do several blogposts about What’s New in Longhorn Server. In the first couple of blogposts I will talk about the 10 Reasons to prepare for Longhorn.
What are the ten reasons? We’ll there are probably more than Ten reasons but in the coming blogposts I will highlight what I think are 10 very good reasons to prepare for Longhorn server.
Here is my list of possible topics:
- Server Management
- Windows PowerShell
- Internet Information Services 7.0
- Server Hardening
- Server Core
- Network Access Protection (NAP)
- Failover Clustering
- Branch Office Deployments
- Windows Server Virtualization
- New Terminal Services Capabilities
In the first post (which I hopefully will post tomorrow) I will talk about how we simplified the Server Management going from the Installation procedure to the Server Manager tool.
